This is a new take on browser operation, specifically for Google Chrome. It is a bit of a hack as it relies on the Smooth Key Scroll extension. The extension increases scroll speed depending on whether ctrl or alt is pressed. The extension settings for me are: arrow: 7px, ctrl + arrow: 17px, alt + arrow: 37px (the default values have ctrl as the fastest). The result is smooth joystick scrolling without having the middle click graphic visible which can be distracting and move the arrow around in unpredictable ways. I haven't tested behavior without the extension and expect that moving the joystick to its stops will cause scrolling to stutter and stop. I realize that may be a hair controversial, but it's what I've done to make the browser experience as smooth as possible.

Other notes:

- I've organized the controller to act as a hybrid between the expectations a user would have coming from the Steam Big Picture browser and the very well put together XBStart program intended to bring the real advantages of Windows 8 Start Screen to bear on a living room HTPC. I have multiple Win 8 Tiles set to open the Chrome homepage, Youtube, and Amazon Instant Video fullscreen. This maximizes as close to a seamless experience as I can get without someone trying to hack the Amazon video API for an XBMC/Kodi plugin (again) and having Amazon close the workaround (again). It's just the browser fullscreen getting out of the way of Amazon's movie selection.
